My youngest daughter celebrated her 20th birthday with a party last night, and yes, mom got a personal invitation! My eldest daughter, who wanted to go with me, picked me up and we went to the party together.
The first thing that happened when I walked into the door was my daughter, who was sitting on the couch with a group of friends taking pictures, got up from her picture taking session (in the middle of a shot I might add) and excitedly pranced over to the door to hug me and loudly announced to everyone in the room “my mommy is here!”
Then half of her friends that know me ran over and formed a line to give me hugs. I have to admit that this was a really good feeling. The “feel good” for me is this:
1. I have a soulful connection with my children. A connection that is authentic, and meaningful. My children carry me in their heart and I carry them in mine.
2. My connection with my children flows over to their friends. All of my children’s close friends know me and love me (some even call me “mum"), evidenced by real hugs and conversation every time I am in their presence.
3. When I show up, my children get excited. I don’t have a relationship with my children where they wish I wasn’t around… the opposite is true. They want me to be a part of the things that they do and when “mummy” shows up, so do the smiles and laughter.
My daughter is a theater girl… she is an actress and so are most of her friends. Theater people have the energy of light, cheerful and happy go lucky, VERY affectionate and embracing. Being around this type of energy, affects you, whether you want to be affected or not. You either won’t be able to take all of the love and joy, or you find yourself smiling because you are in it. The latter holds true for me every time.
Establishing a soulful connection begins with a mindset of genuine, authentic, acceptance of others. You will never be able to establish a soulful connection with someone if you operate from a judgmental, critical and repulsive place. Establishing a soulful connection with others begins by having a soulful connection with yourself.
At the very essence of who we all are as Spiritual Beings, is love. Appearance is easy to fake for a period of time however, who you authentically are will always show up eventually. Many feel a need to put on a façade because they don’t want people to see the ‘real’ them. But I say… “Will the REAL you please step forward!” Only when you allow yourself to be true to yourself can you be true to others.
My gift of being able to connect with people in their soul draws people to me all the time, even 19 and 20 year olds. And you know what…. I LOVE IT!!! I absolutely love being able to reach and connect with people in their heart space, because when I do, I am connecting with who they genuinely are.
At the party, I connected with one of my daughters 21 year old friends. We talked for 2-1/2 hours as I helped him to connect to his true nature and understand why he was who he was, and why he felt what he felt. After our conversation he said “I always feel so much better after talking to you. You help me to see things so much more clearly.”
And therein lies my joy and my reward. I am all about Soulful Connections and my calling and gift allows me to be able to show others how to have Soulful Connections with their loved ones, friends and others… and I wouldn’t trade who I am, or what I do for anything in the world! J
BE Love, BE Power
I am a lover of life and a lover of people. When we learn to connect in our heart space, love will be the driving force behind all we do. BE Love, BE Power!
